CHADBOURN, NC (WECT) - The owner of a home off West 1st Street in Chadbourn will have to pay $325 for not having his 15 dogs vaccinated and not having proper doghouses for some.
Officers with Columbus County animal control tell us, they cited the man Monday.
According to town officials, the owner of Chadbourn Feed Service, is losing assets due to rats coming over from the yard next door, eating feed.
Town officials say, the owner of the yard has cleaned up a little and they're trying to determine what steps to take.
Last Wednesday, officers with the county's animal control gave the man 72 hours to update the dogs on rabies shots and to place the dogs in doghouses.
